Chris Cuomo's recent "Fredo" viral video, an incident involving contributor April Ryan earlier this month and a lawsuit filed against Don Lemon -- which CNN calls a "shakedown" -- are causing concern for the cable news network. “We are living in a time where journalists are being confronted with orchestrated provocations on Sunday afternoons while out with their families, and shakedowns from people looking to make a quick buck,” an anonymous CNN executive tells The Washington Post. “All because of where they work and their commitment to holding those in power accountable. License to do so is being given from the highest levels of office in the country. It is dangerous, and it is wrong.” As The Post's Paul Farhi notes, "the network sees itself as subject to threats in the wake of relentless criticism and provocations from President Trump."
